McCall Farms partners with elementary school
McCall Farms has become a School-Business Partner with Dewey L. Carter Elementary School.
“This gives the faculty and staff at Dewey Carter a neighbor to call when needs arise, said Darryl Davids, vice president of Human Resources at McCall. “We have already been able to provide managers to participate in the Read to Succeed Literacy Program, give support of $2,000 for the Gardening for Educators, and last week provide a meal for the teachers and staff during Teacher Appreciation week.”
The Swink family, owners of McCall Farms, continues to show great support through these types of community engagement efforts.
“As a family owned company, we feel a deep connection to the area and the families that live here,” says Gray Hunter, Lean Leader at McCall Farms, and one of the generational leaders of the company.
The School-Business Partnership Program gives businesses a way to offer support to their communities and become good corporate stewards. By partnering with local schools, the business can assist with fundraising efforts, back-to-school activities and literacy programs that provide positive ways to give back as well as invest for the future.
